The construction of a building is a complex undertaking, presenting unique legal risks and pitfalls that require steady guidance for success.

Epstein Becker Green’s construction law attorneys guide project owner and developer clients through every step of the construction process, including:

  • development planning;
  • design agreements, construction contracts (including insurance-related provisions), subcontracts, and bids;
  • contractor selection;
  • construction insurance;
  • compliance with environmental, zoning, code, licensing, and other statutory regulations, as well as National Fire Protection Association 101 Life Safety Code requirements;
  • construction operations issues, such as change orders, delays, unexpected conditions, and more;
  • construction-related employment issues; and
  • design- or construction-related disputes and claims, in mediation, in arbitration, or at trial.

With strict timelines and high stakes, construction clients value our ability to speak the language of construction, addressing concerns and practices in a clear and understandable way and giving context for the business decisions they face.

Construction projects are multidimensional, and we have you covered on all sides.

Industry Experience

Our team has handled matters in a broad range of industries. We have advised a host of companies that have appeared on Engineering News Record’s “Top 425 Owners” list, from industries including:

  • health care and life sciences;
  • manufacturing and industrial;
  • multi-family;
  • hospitality and entertainment;
  • professional sports franchises; and

Resolution Oriented but Courtroom Ready

Time is money, and litigation can be expensive. We help clients settle disputes as early as possible, whenever possible. But when it’s necessary, our litigators are on call to pursue or defend against construction and property management disputes. We have litigated or resolved a wide array of significant matters, including those related to:

  • design and workmanship defects;
  • negligence claims;
  • breach-of-contract and warranty claims;
  • construction-related environmental and toxic tort claims;
  • wrongful death actions;
  • ADA and OSHA violations;
  • bid protests; and
  • concealed and differing site condition claims.

We’ve seen it all before—and, when necessary, we’ve brought it all to court.
